"We just bought our citron from my boss. His name is Sinbad. We first met Sinbad while my boss was away on vacation and I was caring for all his birds. He has 27 birds of different kinds. Sinbad immediately flew to me and it took me a while to get him off when it was time to leave. My boyfriend would come to help me sometimes and Sinbad loved him too. He would fly back and forth between us, and it was hard to get anything done! Hey, its not easy sweeping under dozens of cages with a bird hanging off your chest! After my boss came back, Sinbad would sometimes bite him and seemed unhappy. When we would come to visit Sinbad would come right to us, talking and playing! This is very unusual because I have heard they have very strong bonds with their owners. My boss owned him for 12 years, since Sinbad was a baby! After a lot of begging, he agreed to sell us the bird. Whatever the reason he took to us, we feel blessed. Sinbad is such a joy to have around. He has such a personality, and everyday is full of new surprises! He does demand a lot of attention. Luckily, Matt and I usually work seperate shifts, because Sinbad doesnt like being in his cage. He chews anything he can get his beak on, so he has to be caged when no one is home. If you have A LOT of extra time and energy, a cockatoo is a good choice. They are so loving and wonderful companions. But its almost like having a child, very high-maintainence! They have needs that must be met. If you cant make a commitment to your cockatoo, maybe you should look into a different kind of bird."
